Extron Now Shipping New Scaling Presentation Switcher with Built-In Control Processor

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the IN1608 IPCP, new models within the IN1608 product family that feature built-in Extron IP Link Pro control processors for complete and powerful AV system control. The IN1608 IPCP is a highly versatile scaling presentation switcher that delivers the technologically advanced capabilities necessary to design and integrate a complete AV system in one box, including an HDCP-compliant, multi-format video switcher, an advanced scaling engine, integrated DTP transmitter and receivers for signal extension up to 330 feet (100 meters), a high performance mono or stereo amplifier, comprehensive audio processing, and an advanced control processor that is uniquely expandable. The IN1608 IPCP is the new industry standard for fully integrated AV systems, greatly simplifying system design and installation, and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

“The IN1608 has been extremely popular with our customers and we are very excited to be shipping the IN1608 IPCP for delivering total system integration,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “This scaling presentation switcher is now available with a built-in IP Link Pro control processor that delivers powerful capabilities for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system.”

The IN1608 IPCP features a built-in IP Link Pro control processor, with the same advanced features, processing power, and breakthrough technologies found in the standalone Extron IPCP Pro control processors. The IN1608 IPCP delivers high-speed processing and abundant control port capacity for complete, customizable control of an entire AV system, including all source devices and displays, plus room functions. Simply connect an Extron TouchLink Pro touchpanel to the built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch to create a complete AV control system.

As with all Extron control systems, the IN1608 IPCP is very intuitive and easy to configure with Global Configurator software. The latest version of Global Configurator includes powerful, advanced features such as conditional logic, local variables, and macros. Global Configurator Professional adds unprecedented scalability with Controller Groups, a unique feature that allows an IN1608 IPCP to be combined with additional IP Link Pro processors to create a large-scale control system. This is ideal for controlling multiple systems, rooms, or even remote locations around the world. IN1608 IPCP systems throughout a facility, building, campus, or offices worldwide can be monitored and managed using Extron GlobalViewer Enterprise server-based software.

With the purchase of an Extron LinkLicense with the IN1608 IPCP, a tablet or laptop can serve as the primary control interface for the AV system. A unique benefit of LinkLicense is the ability to use Extron GUI Designer software to design interfaces for specific user roles in an organization. LinkLicense works seamlessly with Extron’s TouchLink for iPad app, and allows an interface to be duplicated to many additional devices. It simplifies deployment of AV system control for BYOD with a single license purchase per system and no per-user fees, and allows a standardized BYOD strategy for AV control across an organization.

Robben Ford Sounds Spectacular In Asia Thanks To DPA

American blues, jazz and rock guitarist Robben Ford delivered an outstanding live performance when he and his band played Shatin Town Hall Auditorium in Hong Kong recently.

The sound quality was enhanced by the use of DPA microphones, a selection of which played a key role in ensuring the success of the event.

“As a concert promoter for over ten years, I have to say that Robben’s concert was our BEST in terms of sound and audio quality,” says Mr. Clarence Chang, from Jazz World Live Series that organized the concert. “This is all thanks to the great engineer Richard Wheeler and DPA Microphones.”

Named as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century by Musician Magazine, Robben Ford was a member of the LA Express and has collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of all time including Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis and George Harrison.

For his Hong Kong performance, Ford used a DPA d:facto™ Vocal Microphone, while his guitar amps and the bass amp were picked up by DPA d:dicate™ 2011C Twin Diaphragm Compact Cardioid Recording Microphones.

Sound engineer Richard Wheeler used a d:dicate 2011C microphone for the kick drum, positioning it half way into the hole where it delivered a clean, punchy and powerful sound. The top of the snare was also miked using a d:dicate 2011C, which was twinned with a DPA d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphone positioned on the bottom of the snare. All of the other drums were picked up individually using d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones in close proximity, while a perfect stereo image for the live mix was captured using a pair of DPA d:dicate 4011A stereo matched overhead recording microphones.

Robben Ford’s set also featured a Hammond B3 organ with a Leslie speaker. Two d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones were used to pick up the top spinning horn rotor in stereo, while the bass rotor was captured using another d:dicate 2011C microphone.

Commenting on the sound quality after the show, Wheeler says: “I was amazed by it, especially the sound from the d:facto Vocal Microphone. It sounded just like Robben himself.”

DPS Inc. Provides HARMAN’s Martin Lighting and Controllers for Jesus Culture’s Live Album and DVD Recording

SACRAMENTO, California — Jesus Culture, which began as a youth group at a church in northern California, has become a global movement that includes conferences, events, campus ministries, and worship curriculums dedicated to demonstrating the love and power of God. To commemorate its recent relocation from Redding, California, where it was based for 18 years, to Sacramento, the Jesus Culture band recorded ‘Unstoppable Love’, a live album and DVD, at Sacramento’s prestigious Memorial Auditorium. With the help of HARMAN’s Martin Professional lighting console and fixtures, Lighting Designer Robby Kurtz was able to both successfully represent the Jesus Culture movement and showcase the importance of its relocation. California-based rental house DPS Inc., provided the lighting production equipment.

Kurtz deployed 32 of Martin’s MAC Viper Profile moving head luminaires and 26 Martin Atomic 3000 Strobe fixtures, to create a complicated design that ensured each song had its own look and, at the same time, kept the audience’s attention from being drawn to just one visual element.

The design featured 14 MAC Vipers hung from trusses above the stage with six on the stage deck and 12 additional Vipers around the audience to give the cameras aerial effects and to backlight the crowd. “The MAC Vipers were the main profiles for visual effects on the back wall and in the air,” said Kurtz. “I used gobos with a super-wide zoom setting and the light was able to cut through the other visual elements on the stage. Also, the Viper optics and speed are two of the main reasons I chose them for this event. The Zoom and Focus whips around at close to Iris speeds, which is awesome!”

Martin’s Atomic Strobe lights were also used throughout the production with additional fixtures hanging on DPS Inc.’s custom-built pipe hexagons that are suspended over the stage. “The Atomics are always a great way to help build audience energy during songs,” said Kurtz.

Kurtz also used Martin’s M6 lighting console to control the entire design. “I’ve been using the M-Series console platform since 2004 so having the M6 for this event was a perfect fit,” Kurtz said. “DPS provided 330 intelligent fixtures that spread over 25 universes and the M6 really helped me to spread out and have enough power to drive all the fixtures. The console worked like a champ and was extremely stable. With all the assignable encoders, it makes for a really fun desk that is very quick to program.”

As an avid user of Martin’s ShowDesigner software since MSD 4 Gold, Kurtz now owns the recently introduced MSD 6. “The Show Designer software is a great tool for programming offline,” said Kurtz. “I spent a couple of days building the foundation of the show at home, which saved a ton of time on-site.”

Kurtz said that the powerful combination of Martin and DPS Inc. was a critical part of capturing the essence of Jesus Culture. “The Jesus Culture band and ministry was very happy with how the event turned out and with what they have seen of the video,” he said. “The combination of Martin and DPS Inc.’s expertise resulted in an event that really represented Jesus Culture well and was true to the movement. Martin never disappoints with its new products and innovations. The quality and dependability of Martin products prove that they’ve been designed and tested for the biggest shows in the world.”

As a world leader in the creation of dynamic lighting solutions for the entertainment, architectural, and commercial sectors, Martin lighting and video systems are renowned the world over. Martin also offers a range of advanced lighting controllers and media servers, as well as a complete line of smoke machines as a complement to intelligent lighting.

“We’re pleased to integrate our comprehensive industry resource into the D-Tools System Integrator software platform, providing a highly proficient user community of AV integrators greater access to the product specifications that are critical to their success,” said John Fuchs, Senior VP of InfoComm AV-iQ.

The integration of InfoComm AV-iQ data into the D-Tools Data Browser environment will make it easy for SI users to find the right product for the job.

New PESA Xstream C22 Compact Streaming System Offers Flexible AV Configurations for Sharing Content

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading designer and manufacturer of professional audio and video distribution solutions, will introduce its PESA Xstream C22 compact streaming system at InfoComm 2014 (Booth C6014), which runs June 18-20 in Las Vegas, Nev. The latest addition to the PESA Xstream family of multi-channel HD IP streaming devices, the C22 includes I/O options for standalone streaming applications or as part of a larger hybrid broadcast system.

The C22 can be configured as a two port video encoder or two port decoder, orcan include one of each. It includes HDMI, coax and Ethernet (for an IP-based camera) video inputs, and optional SFP modules allow multiple configurations (fiber, HD-BNC, A-to-D, D-to-A and other SFP modules) for expanded connectivity. The C22 also supports two external audio sources, which can be synchronized to either or both video streams during an event.

With built-in genlock, video signals can be locked to an external source for glitch-free video switching in broadcast and pro AV applications. An HDMI out allows for local preview, while an integrated Web server allows full remote control, so no personnel are required on site for streaming content to a production facility.

“The PESA XStream C22 is an affordable streaming solution for so many markets, including medical or educational applications, justice and government, security and first responders, and sports and entertainment production. The dollar-to-stream value is significant, especially compared to other products that only offer one video stream,” said Chris Thomas, PESA vice president of engineering and CTO. “It’s a great standalone solution or it can be used with other routing equipment to share content between facilities.”

Multiple C22 units can be used to allow AV professionals to compress, stream and share high-quality content between locations and enable streaming in existing video distribution. The C22 is also an ideal bi-directional content sharing solution. Two C22 units can be configured with one encoder to send video and one decoder to receive video, allowing live interaction between sites.

The PESA Xstream C22 will be available this summer.

HARMAN’s JBL Professional Introduces High-Humidity Grilles for Control® 10 Series Ceiling Speakers

NORTHRIDGE, California – HARMAN’s JBL Professional is introducing the MTC-14WG and MTC-16WG high-humidity grilles for its industry-leading Control® 10 Series ceiling speakers. These grilles fit JBL’s Control 12C/T, Control 14C/T, and Control 16C/T, as well as Control 26C and 26CT. Made of an aluminum alloy material that does not rust and finished in a durable powder-coat, these grilles can extend the longevity of ceiling speakers when installed in humid environments.

The MTC-14WG and MTC-16WG address the weakest link when using ceiling speakers in high-humidity applications: a steel grille that can rust. These high-humidity grilles extend the longevity of JBL’s Control 10 Series model ceiling speakers, as their aluminum alloy material does not rust and the durable powder-coated finish prevents pitting that could otherwise occur with raw unfinished aluminum. The finish provides a nice look that matches with the speaker.

“JBL has offered weather grilles for many of our surface-mount speakers and these MTC-WG grilles are the first such products for our ceiling speakers,” said Rick Kamlet, Senior Manager, Commercial Sound, JBL Professional. “With these new grilles, our ceiling speaker models can be used in high-humidity applications, such as outdoor patios, business entranceways and restrooms.”

The MTC-14WG and MTC-16WG high-humidity grilles are available in either white or black.

New Jersey Township Chooses Yamaha CIS System

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The Township of Evesham, New Jersey courthouse is a typical municipal courtroom. It doubles as a non-jury courtroom, as well as a council meeting room and a township meeting room. Between the court and various town meetings, there can be up to 16 microphones on at any given time. The microphones need to be fed to the live speakers and for multi-track recording purposes.

ACIR Professional of Mays Landing, New Jersey was chosen to replace the live portion of the Township’s audio system in the hope of obtaining a cleaner, clearer sound. “In addition to obtaining a better quality sound, the customer still wanted to be able to send audio via multi-track to record,” states Vice President of Sales, Bobby Harper. “Having just demoed the new Yamaha CIS (Commercial Installation Solutions) Series products, the design became obvious.”

ACIR Pro chose a Yamaha MTX5-D processor with the EiX8-8 channel extender in order to accommodate the 16 inputs required. The processor also handles the routing of multi-track and a 4-zone (mix minus) to the Yamaha XMV4280-D Dante-enabled 4-channel amplifier. Yamaha VXC8W speakers were chosen for their clarity and ease of installation. The speakers are zoned for maximum gain before feedback. With assistance from a Dugan MY-16 Auto Mixer card installed in the MTX5-D and the extensive parametric EQ capabilities on each zone output.

Harper said the volume and clarity before feedback was staggering for both courtroom and meeting pre-sets. The presets were stored in the Yamaha MTX5-D library. Recall is available from an in-wall mounted Yamaha DCP1V4S-US controller that the clerk has at his/her fingertips. “Overall Yamaha was selected because of its new all-in-one CIS solution.”

ACIR also installed a Yamaha HS Studio Monitor along with 16 Shure MX418 D/C microphones.
